Every nonprofit is unique. You are fighting for a specific, unique cause. You are serving a unique part of society, whether it be the dung beetles in Alaska or the homeless in Los Angeles. You have unique employees who are dedicated to your cause. You also have unique funding needs. Because there are so many things that make your organization unique, I want to help you tell your own story and apply for your own grants.
I have developed Grant Writing: How to Write Nonprofit Grants to cultivate your grant writing skills and empower you to write successful grants. There are millions of grants that you can apply for and quite a few foundations hardly receive any applications for their grants. This is money that could be accessed if you dedicate time to writing grants.
This course is designed with nonprofit organizations and their employees in mind. You will learn about the key aspects of a grant application, you will find grants that you can apply for, and you will go through the entire grant application process.
Your learning will be facilitated by video presentations, worksheets, quizzes, and assignments that will solidify the grant writing process and propel you towards getting funded.

We Were Funded! Now What?
Why Didn't We Get Funded? What Do We Do Now?
I am working my way through the course and so far the instructor has already mentioned a few items that I need to improve.
Yes it gives me an idea of what I need to help the non-profits to have in place to get the process started and increase their chances of being approved
Because I have never written a grant, this is a good course for me to learn what will be the organization's best bet for getting noticed.
The course was quite educational and enlightening,it has revealed to me the constant mistakes I have been doing over the years,in the proposals I have been writing. I see myself writing a better proposal for the NGO for funding only to donors we are qualified to,and also be well prepared for the proposal Application presentation in terms of documentation
I am a beginner in the grant writing process and feel that the course is pitched at a level that I can understand, benefit from and hopefully immediately put into practice.
A lot of good, understandable, beginner information on grant writing for non-profits. This has helped quite a bit!
It did give me some information that I didn't know. I guess I wanted more therefore, I will take another class. Thank you
Good course with many great ideas. I am in the beginning stages of Grant Writing, and welcome all additional information. I plan to review this course periodically.
I have Zero experience in grant writing. This class shows the basic steps you need to write a grant. I especially liked the attachments and quizzes!
I have not completed the course yet- at this point- I have learned a lot. After completion, I have found more information than expected and I strongly feel all of it- will be very helpful.
I like the variety of information covered. This is a good overall a-z explanation of grant writing. Now that I know briefly what it entails, I can move on to more specific courses related to my part in grant writing.
This is a good course for beginners but the specific stories could be much shorter and were often frustrating to sit through because they were so long. The presentation of this course could be more practiced so there aren't so many verbal crutches and long pauses.
This really help me better understand the process and I begin to write my first few grants. Thanks for the great information
I enjoyed this course because it was easy to understand and follow. The added resources along with the instruction was a good fit.
While it was a good basic jumping in place, certain things like 990 was assumed that I knew and I had to stop and look it up. Perhaps a note pop-up for things that need to be explained but not infringe on time.
